Having just joined rootschat.com i am overwhelmed by my findings.

I am the great great grandson of William and Phoebe Cooke, the great grandson of James and Sarah Ledger and the grandson of their daughter Nellie.

I am finding the reading fascinating and would appreciate any additional information.

Kind regards,

JB

Just trying to tally up all the children!
William bn 1851 Ludlow
Thomas bn 1853 Eye
Joseph bn 1855 Eye
Susan bn 1858 Eye
Mary Ann bn 1860 Eye
Sarah bn 1864 Eye
Fanny bn 1867 Eye marries Albert Mapp, children Ann Cooke, William, Arthur, Phoebe, Alice, Mary
Caroline bn 1870 Eye marries James Downes, children William, Agnes, Elizabeth and Florence
Arthur bn 1874 Eye
Gertrude bn 1876 Eye


I am trying to trace a Catherine Cooke, daughter of a William Cooke (Gamekeeper). She was born 1869, Ashton Eye.
I notice that there is another Caroline in the 1861 census and it maybe that she changed her name to avoid confusion with the above Caroline? She worked at Berington Hall before moving to Oldham for work and married in 1898.
